Who Are We? In the early 1970’s, under the leadership of Dr. Gale Bartow, Superintendent of the Blue Springs School District, the Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) was created. The committee was – and continues to be today – comprised of district patrons, business owners, and school district staff members who are interested in keeping abreast of all aspects of school district issues. Over the years, the CAC has been instrumental in helping the board of education and administration determine the needs of the district as a whole and how those needs should be met. The success in passing over 30 years of bond and levy elections can be directly attributed to the support of this group of concerned individuals who work tirelessly to see that the students of the Blue Springs School District have the resources they need to attain the best education possible.
